My Family, presented by ACCESS AIDS Care, is a photo essay that showcases the diversity among LGBT families. “Family” can mean different things to different people: birth families, partners, children, chosen families, etc. My Family aims to celebrate the diversity and strength among LGBT families.
For almost 25 years, ACCESS AIDS Care has been providing programs and services to individuals and families impacted by HIV/AIDS in Hampton Roads. Our goal is to promote the dignity and wellness of adults, families, youth and children affected by HIV/AIDS. Primary services include HIV medical case management, medication assistance, transportation services, permanent supportive housing and HIV prevention through education and testing.
In the summer of 2011, ACCESS AIDS Care opened The LGBT Center of Hampton Roads. The mission of the Center is to provide a safe space, services, resources, education and support to the LGBT community of Hampton Roads. The Center is committed to fulfilling the diverse social needs of the Hampton Roads LGBT community by hosting weekly social and educational events. They help improve an individual's quality of life and empower each individual, family member and friend to live a life in peace.
What We Accomplished Last Year:
The LGBT Center continues to provide clinical mental health counseling, a variety of LGBT support groups, meeting space for other non-profits, hosting social and education events and providing a safe place for the LGBT community to gather.
